I'm really missing a nifty little favicon for this site which would make MW even more 'special'! ;-)))

I've created two suggestions, how do you guys think about it?

1)

2)
Lovely greetings, Cori

Hm, I can't see the graphics for it...
Is it only me? Or is there a problem with the links?

Nevertheless a good idea, I also missed an appropiate favicon.

Btw:
Nice sig, Cori. :-D

Thanks Doc! Like her, too... *grin*

Btw, it must be a Photobucket problem. Can't load my whole album.
So here again my suggestions for a favicon:

1)

Now they are visible. :-)

I instantly decide for #1.
#2 looks too much like the symbol used at Ramseys. ;-)

This one gets my vote because even at the small size it looks like a spiral galaxy ;)

The spiral is really good, the longer I watch it the more I like it. :-)

But I've made another icon even so - just to have something very different... *grin*

Hi Cori
It took me a while to see it - I was distracted by the contents of the glass in the picture *snigger*
A very clever favicon, a close second after the spiral for me.

I like these 2 so far.
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.

Thanks, Rod! Sometime simple solutions are the best - or at least the second best. *grin*

I've had another couple of tries at a 'sprial' version;

This my first try for comparison;

Guess it's kinda hard for them to choose between all of the suggested icons. ;-)
Since we have enough now, we should decide with a voting contest, I'll open up a new thread.
No more suggestions now please. ;-)
